Well well well, has someone told the boys in the local departments that this crap about shooting unarmed suspects is not going to keep happening without consequence?

It appears so:

A Tulsa, Oklahoma reserve sheriff's deputy was charged with second-degree manslaughter Monday for the shooting death of an unarmed black man, the local district attorney said.

This is the "reserve" cop who allegedly "accidentally" drew his gun instead of a stun gun (and is heard admitting he shot the suspect by accident on tape.)

Once again cameras, in this case sunglass cameras, recorded the entire incident.

Manslaughter appears facially to be the correct charge; he clearly didn't intend to kill the man, but culpable negligence resulted in his death, and that's what manslaughter covers.

This makes two out of two recently.... is the tide turning due to video recording -- and, perhaps, due to the level of outrage getting to the point that there simply is no more defense and avoidance available and thus this crap must stop before cops start being preemptively labeled as "Greedo" by the common man on the street?

One wonders, but whatever the impetus is as long as it stops I don't care who told who to cut the crap, or why.
